Vista hace fe… we’re going digital

Vista hace fe… we’re going digital

Cuba is increasingly computerized despite its condition as an offline country. Some of the most successful and widespread digital projects that have had an effect on thousands, not to say on millions of Cubans, have been generated by young entrepreneurs under conditions of technological but not conceptual disconnection. They are ready for the moment of predominance of connectivity and of the role of the networks in the life of the country. They are not indifferent to politics or to the economy, but they do not understand the latter as a guideline or a constraint, and they are developing ways of thinking and acting from a parallel platform. According to what they have said, they do not operate from the margins or illegality, but from an “a-legal limbo” awaiting growth and legitimacy.

Vista hace fe… we’re going digital (Seeing is believing…) was the exhibit that gathered a small sector of these projects and their creators, which the Estudio Figueroa-Vives and the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway in Havana decided to recognize among the youngest and most influential entrepreneurs of present-day Cuba. In the exhibit were included apps and digital magazines of cultural contents.

Vistar Magazine. Monthly digital magazine self-defined as a publication of “culture, show business and entertainment in Cuba”.

AlaMesa e Isladentro. Offline applications listing a growing variety of hostel, restaurant, services of various kinds, including cultural activities, mostly managed by the growing private sector.

El Paquete Semanal. Also known as “the Internet” of the disconnected. Network of private distribution of digital contents through the one terabyte hard disks. It contains television serials, films, music, video clips, publicity, magazines, softwares and classified ads. National distribution updated weekly.
